Teacher Opinions

NC teachers did an online survey.

Among the survey findings, 49 percent of respondents said they don’t have reasonable class sizes that will help them meet the educational needs of all students.

The average class size in 1999-2000 was 21.1pupils for public elementary schools and 23.6 for public secondary schools (table 69). In 2000, there were 8.2 pupils per staff member (total staff) compared with 9.8 pupils per staff member in 1980.

Taxpayers are already paying for the staff of assistants, aides, and other help for the teachers, and now we’re expected to pay for new hires to reduce more of their workload so they can visit with their co-workers.
